I hope this column finds you and your family healthy and in good spirits. With so much going on in the world, we are lucky to have our hounds to keep our spirits up. I know that I personally would've been admitted to a local mental ward during this lengthy quarantine, if I didn't have the ability to take my hounds out and run them.
The UKC office has been closed, per state regulations for COVID-19, since March 24th. We have been working remotely from our homes. At the time this article was written (early April), we anticipated opening again on April 30th. As of now, that has been extended to mid-May.
In this month's column, I took a look at a few UKC related items that have been affected the past couple months by the virus, followed by covering some nite hunt topics, including a topic that Allen covered in the March 2016 issue regarding judges on a cast.
Guided by the belief that dogs make a difference by being the best partner a human can have in the field, on the job, or in a competition event, UKC is a community for people and dogs to pursue excellence together. Founded in 1898, UKC has been dedicated to enhancing the lives of Dogs That Do More, and their owners, by providing essential resources to help owners and breeders make informed decisions. The dog-human bond is celebrated through family-friendly programs highlighting the instincts and heritage of purebred and mixed-breed dogs alike at over 15,000 licensed events annually.
